Blue House unveils 'peace gift' puppies

South Korea's president has revealed the first pictures of puppies mothered by one of North Korea's "peace gift" dogs, Gomi.

The North's leader, Kim Jong-un, sent the two dogs to his counterpart Moon Jae-in in a bid to promote peace amid thawing ties on the Korean peninsula.

Gomi, a Pungsan hunting dog, gave birth to three female and three male puppies.

President Moon shared photos of the dogs on the official Blue House twitter feed on Sunday.

 "As the pregnancy period of dogs is about two months, Gomi must have come to us pregnant," he reportedly tweeted when the pups were born. "I hope inter-Korean affairs will be like this."

Days after the puppies were born, South Korea flew military planes filled with tangerines to Pyongyang. The North had previously sent pine mushrooms over the border following a summit between the two leaders.

Gomi and the other dog, Songgang, came to the South with nearly seven pounds of food, and joined President Moon's other pets - including rescue dog, Tory.
